Wave Consulting, already the preferred source for SunSystems solution support and consulting, have worked to produce THE financial systems cloud hosting service. With many years of experience working with the technical requirements of SunSystems and its related add-ons, we have combined this with our expertise in support and services to provide the optimum hosting solution for users of SunSystems and associated software.
What is native cloud?
A native cloud application is the new way to “own” and use business applications. Rather than manage the computing infrastructure either in-house or via a third-party IT services arrangement, the application is written, managed and distributed to you securely by its authors across the public internet.
There are many benefits including reducing costs of in-house IT, gaining access to higher levels of information security and to removing the typical cycle time for software upgrades and updates as authors publish enhancements to the cloud in a non-disruptive, continual cycle.
Native cloud apps are always up-to-date and always available and dynamically increase their resources in reaction to increased demand keeping costs to them and you to a minimum.
Our experience of our application customers’ requirements has helped us to chose and enhance the offerings from our application partners so we are able to manage all our implementations to meet their needs without compromise.
What is hosting?
In essence, Wave will install and proactively manage your software on a secure data centre or cloud, relieving your IT team of all responsibility for setting up and maintaining the servers, the databases and the software.
Users will continue to access the applications seamlessly through secure links.
Wave will provide integrated support for the entire function through a single help-desk, avoiding the discrepancies and poor communication that accompany most attempts at outsourcing.
Our Solution Hosting service is unique in that all involved are deeply experienced in SunSystems and able to manage implementations in a coordinated, cost-effective manner.
Key Benefits of Application Managed Services (AMS):
In both native cloud and hosting ownership/deployment options you no longer have to worry about managing the server infrastructure for your business applications as someone else does it for you. Wave, with our own experts in technical knowledge and application experience, work closely with you and our application partners to deliver an improved experience. These services combined are called Application Managed Services (AMS) and below you can read about the many benefits this provides for native cloud and hosting options.
Reduced Hardware Costs
Hosted services reduce the budget normally needed to purchase the servers and other infrastructure needed to run applications.
Reduce Wasted Internal I.T. Staff Time
Give IT staff the time they need to work on their projects rather than worrying about the day to day stresses of maintaining key applications.
Simplify IT Resourcing
No need to keep technical expertise in SunSystems, Citrix and related technologies on the payroll.
We can take on your SunSystems Administrator role if required.
Effective System Maintenance
Wave proactively manage the infrastructure, keeping server down-time to an absolute minimum by anticipating problems and preventing them having an impact.
The service includes supervision of Anti Virus software and other security systems plus running your backups.
Use of a modern data centre with properly maintained systems is the best possible means of reducing the risk to your data from accidental or malicious interference.
Controlled Development – by agreement Wave will maintain a test system parallel to your live implementation to be used in trialling all patches and other developments prior to adding them to your live environment.
A simple extension of the standard service will save your daily backups on another continent – and ensure they can be brought as required if you are unfortunate enough to loose your usual operating facilities.
Cash Flow Benefits
We can come up with an excellent leasing deal for new SunSystems installations, covering all your up-front costs and spreading payments over time.
